In their February 2010 issue, Track and Field News announced Usain Bolt their unanimous choice for Male Athlete Of the Year saying, ?Usain Bolt continues to be a force of nature, rewriting the sprint record books. He?s also breaking new ground in the AOY department.?
Before Bolt came along, only Henry Rono (?78) and Michael Johnson (?96) had ever been accorded perfect scores on the men?s side. Bolt has now done it twice in a row in both 2008 and 2009 (receiving 32 perfect scores).

Also in the same issue this picture of ?Bolt Arms? appeared. If you don?t already and would like to subscribe to Track and Field News, here?s the link.

Congrats to Usain!
